Neon Genesis Evangelion Image ((HOT))

This paper is about the way in which stillness is used in the unusual and popular animated television series, Neon Genesis Evangelion (Shin seiki evangelion; Hideaki Anno, 1995-96). It also refers to an earlier and quite different animated series, Record of Lodoss War (Lodoss do senki; various, 1989-91) to suggest how stillness has been deployed in more conventional Japanese animated narratives. The paper concentrates on images of stillness in these series. By images of stillness I mean those images without figure movement, not images referring to photographs or paintings. In thinking about the deployment of stillness in these series I have been aided by David Bordwell's work on film narration and Tsvetan Todorov's work on reading and genre in literature . The paper is underpinned with certain ideas about animation, motivation, the cinema, and stillness which should be made explicit at the outset.
